BENEFITING: JACOB A RIIS NEIGHBORHOOD SETTLEMENT
Having witnessed the swelling of pride exhibited by some of my students after performing an acting activity in front of their classmates, I can personally attest to the program's ability to foster self-confidence and pride in those who participate in these programs. The students are from diverse backgrounds who manage to find acceptance among their peers when they put on performances together.
Please show your support for the arts in our school's community. Give these kids a stage to express their creativity and talent to others. Thanks so much!
